The first consultation is complimentary.* We meet at the project site, figure out what you want to do, take pictures, discuss ideas, and then give you a design proposal. We go from there. Every project is different. Deliverables can range anywhere from a few plant ideas to full-blown design plans.
Here are some examples of the different ways it can go:
You receive a batch of photos & plant names that will do very well for your site, style & needs. We’ll list it out by area, so you get an idea of what goes where in descriptive detail. We provide a detailed shopping list of plants with sizes, quantities, soil preps & pricing.
…and if you need the plants…
Plant Purchasing, Placement & Installation
Dunn Gardens will hand pick, purchase, deliver & place the plants in your landscape. We work with you, your gardener, or installing contractor to make sure your garden is done the way you want it. If you need somebody to do the hard work, irrigation or lighting, we can help you there too.
Dunn Gardens specializes in residential hardscape, planting & lighting design. We start with existing site plans or measure & draft the spaces from scratch. We do a lot of back & forth via email photos, nursery walks, etc. honing the perfect design for you. You will receive large format hard copy plans (& digital if desired), along with everything you would receive in the “Planting Palette” service above. Again, if you need the plants procured and placed, we can do that!
Whether part of a larger job or the entirety of it, plants in containers are the crowning touch! We can find some beautiful pots & plants for you and set them up for the finishing detail that says a lot about your style.
